The Chemical Structure Association (CSA) Trust is an internationally recognized organization established to promote the critical importance of chemical information to advances in chemical research. In support of its charter, the Trust has created a unique grant program and is now inviting the submission of grant applications for 2020.
Purpose of the Grants
The grant program has been created to provide funding for the career development of young researchers who have demonstrated excellence in their education, research, or development activities that are related to the systems and methods used to store, process, and retrieve information about chemical structures, reactions, and compounds. One or more grants will be awarded annually up to a total combined maximum of ten thousand U.S. dollars ($10,000). Grantees have the option of payments being made in U.S. dollars or in British pounds equivalent to the U.S. dollar amount. Grants are awarded for specific purposes, and within one year, each grantee is required to submit a brief written report detailing how the grant funds were allocated. Grantees are also requested to recognize the support of the trust in any paper or presentation that is given as a result of that support.
The application deadline for the 2020 grant is March 28, 2020. Successful applicants will be notified no later than May 7, 2020.
